The vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the general election, Peter Obi, has said that serious leaders do not waste time to form their cabinets.
Speaking with journalists in Lagos during the weekend, Obi called on President Muhammadu Buhari to unveil his team as soon as possible.
Buhari was sworn in on May 29 while the main inauguration activities took place on June 12, the new Democracy Day.
However, not a single appointment has been made by the president since then.
Obi challenged Buhari to emulate President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa, who announced his cabinet members three days after taking the oath of office as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India who unveiled his team with the week of his inauguration.
“These are serious leaders who are ready to move their countries forward. Imagine forming their cabinets within one week of being sworn in,” he said.
“Can you compare them with what is happening here in our country? I have always said it that for our country to move forward, it must change its current compass.”
